R. Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier (opera in concert)
Thursday, March 29, 2018 7 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Kirill Petrenko by W. Hösl
Richard Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, set during the reign of the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa, is a bittersweet tale of love lost and found. Sweeping waltzes, unsurpassed ensembles—especially the gorgeous final trio—and stunning orchestration bring Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s witty libretto to life. Rhapsodic, comic, and deeply moving, Der Rosenkavalier is Strauss’s crowning operatic achievement.

At a Glance

With his series of graphic tone poems and his shocking first two operatic successes Salome and Elektra, Richard Strauss seemed firmly established as Europe’s most radical composer by the age of 46. But with his waltz-filled Der Rosenkavalier—which premiered in Dresden on January 26, 1911—he took a sudden swerve in a more conservative direction, a swerve that would predict the remainder of his long career. Today, Der Rosenkavalier is considered his greatest opera, and it is without question his most popular—a glorious amalgamation of high comedy, heartache, and unforgettable melodies.
